Hi everyone brand new here. Have been shopping around recently to replace my macbook of 4 years now. I have a $1000 gift card to the microsoft store, so I would prefer to purchase my laptop there, but I also am waiting on what ivy bridge laptops they will receive.

I guess as a point of reference I've looked at the sager np9150 and the lenovo y580 as both pretty good options. If there were any other laptops that may be a little on the lighter/slimmer side as far as form factor but still able to run the games I plan on playing on medium/high settings that would be great.
